State audit finds progress in unemployment insurance system overhaul

  • Staff Report 

A follow-up audit of New York’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) system found some progress in addressing previous issues. The Department of Labor (DOL) has implemented two of six recommendations from the initial audit, with three partially implemented and one not addressed.

The initial audit highlighted problems during the COVID-19 pandemic, including fraud risks and system mismanagement. Despite efforts to improve, DOL still faces challenges in securing UI system data and responding promptly to issues.

DOL officials are requested to provide a plan to address the remaining problems within 30 days of the report’s release.
